Cape’s young guns of field hockey start each game like gulls on fries or tourists on taffy. They are 100 percent young and relentless, peppering goaltenders with a barrage of passes and slap shots, and they only nap between goals but never rest when the game is in motion.

Caesar Rodney, one of the better junior varsity teams in the Henlopen Conference, came to town Oct. 2 for a little bit of the “what’s up” and was outshot 41-2 as Cape took a 2- 0 halftime lead and blew it out to a 6-0 victory.

Goals were scored in the game by Madi Irwin 3, Corrine Cannon, Sydney Ostroski and Morgan Catts.

Becky Sponaugle, Sydney Ostroski 2, Lizzie Frederick and Madeline Baptiste 2 were credited with assists.

Shannon McCall went the distance in goal and was credited with one save.

Since losing at Severna Park, Cape’s young guns have run off six straight wins, outscoring opponents 45-2.

They are coached by Carolyn Kisling, who played at East Stroudsburg University, and Kristina Lingo, who played for Cape before excelling in softball at Fairfield University.

The JV will be shut down for a week as both Sussex Central and Indian River don’t have JV teams.
